Holbrook Public Library Fund, inc. 

The Holbrook Board of Library Trustees are pleased to introduce to the community The Holbrook Public Library Fund. The Trustees know that there are significant issues with our current library space. The Town of Holbrook has changed significantly since 1967 when the building opened and with more housing being built, will continue to grow and change. The building is too small for the size of our community and doesn't meet the current needs of a 21st century library, with a lack of meeting rooms / programming space, no quiet study areas, no group project space, and no storage. Additionally there are ongoing flooding issues of the one Meeting Room and the elevator, which makes the lower level not ADA accessible. 

The Library Fund's priority is to raise money for capital expenses - like a new building, a major renovation, or perhaps an addition and renovation. They will do this through events, fundraisers, talking directly with donors, and reaching out to businesses and corporations. Their first goal is to raise enough funds for a feasibility study. The Library Fund is a legally registered 501c3 nonprofit organization solely dedicated to the Holbrook Library's future. 

The Library Fund would like to invite the community to their first fundraiser. This event is in two parts over two days. On Friday, June 9th from 4-8pm is an ages 21+ event called Putt and Pour. Enjoy local breweries, learn about the history of beer, and challenge your friends, partner, or even yourself to a great mini golf game inside the library. On Saturday, June 10th from 9:30am-2:30pm (open library hours), the mini golf course will still be available for all ages to enjoy.


The Board of Library Trustees would like to introduce the board members of The Library Fund, President Russ Eckel, Treasurer Joyce Davis, and Clerk Cheryl Alexis. Each board member has a connection with Holbrook, either working or living in town. We would like to thank them for stepping into these newly created roles to help make an impact on the future of Holbrook.

The Trustees would also like to thank the Friends of the Holbrook Library, another legally registered 501c3 nonprofit organization that helps the library. The Friends fundraise to help support current library programs and initiatives. They do this through ongoing book and DVD sales in the library lobby, as well as pop up sales, and major book sale events. Additionally, they do various raffles and sell items such as the current reusable bag (get one today - $10 at the library!). The Friends are always accepting donations of gently used books and DVDs.


While these two organizations have different purposes, they are both integral for funding the current and future needs of the library. The Trustees would like to ask you - yes YOU - to consider volunteering with one of these important organizations with your time, talent, or treasure.


The Trustees and Library Fund board are excited to see you all on June 9 and 10!
